Note for Assessors – Following feedback from my tutor I have edited the essay slightly as it required additional references. The original document is still available for reading, and I have provided a link to the newer version.
The brief of the Assignment is the create a critical essay in response to one of four questions. I chose to answer “Has the ‘digital revolution’ created more problems than opportunities for today’s professional photographers?”
The Assignment asks that I discuss this question using relevant case studies and/or specific aspects of modern professional photography. My essay looks at the issues surrounding the misuse of photojournalism due to the ease of change in the digital age.
A PDF copy of the essay ‘Photojournalism, Photomanipulation and Propaganda in the Post Truth Age’ is available here.
